"I just bought a whole bunch of Camper’s Choice bars. It actually works! First product we’ve found that keeps bugs away from my husband. Highly recommended."

Ever think that the soap you use might attract mosquitoes? Campers, gardeners, and outdoor enthusiasts bathe with Camper’s Choice™ before heading outside.
Essential Oils for Repellency and Scent
Camper’s Choice, like our popular Citronella Mist™ insect repellent spray, contains essential oils of citronella, lemongrass, and lemon eucalyptus, which account for the pleasant lemony scent of the bar. Lavender, basil, thyme, patchouli, and costly catnip essential oil, reported being 10 times stronger than DEET, combine to protect you.
Exfoliating, Moisturizing, and Creamy
Camper’s Choice contains oatmeal to soothe and gently exfoliate. Nutritious hemp seed oil in the bar moisturizes sunbaked skin. French green clay contributes to a thick, silky lather.
Try also Camper's Choice Luffa Soap. The scrubbing action helps remove poison ivy and chiggers.
Using Camper's Choice
Shower before and after a hike. This bar will remove poison ivy if you scrub thoroughly with a washcloth. Make sure you remove all the urushiol, the rash-causing compound. Check out this helpful video on YouTube.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women are advised to avoid basil essential oil, though the amount in Camper's Choice soap is negligible.
"We bought your bug repellent soap last summer, and it is wonderful. No problems with mosquitos or ticks! My wife has a lot of allergy issues with soaps & fragrances but not with this. Thank you so much for a wonderful product and great service."
Wayne Whitney, Bella Vista, AR
"My in-laws have a cabin in rural Arkansas, and we go every year for the 4th of July. I am happy to say that I got no bites and used nothing but your soap. Not a drop of commercial repellant (which I despise). Everyone else was miserable! I made believers out of quite a few people."
Jen Chatfield, St. Louis, MO
“We love the insect repellent soap. Haven't had a mosquito bite all season!”
Deb Meade, Hampton, IA
"I tried it, and it works!"
Irene Hopkins, Wildwood, MO
"I used to be the choice mosquito food for the neighborhood. I use the bug repellent soap when I go outside and, it's amazing, I haven't been bit at all."
Inez Conrad, St. Louis, MO
"I have been tormented by the little chiggers that fly around down here all year long. I received the first shipment on Saturday, used it that night, and I have not been bothered since! It’s a miracle! I have very dry skin, and I haven’t even had to use a moisturizer with this soap. I plan on never being without it. Thanks!"
Barbara Smith, Tupelo, MS
"Highly recommend, works great."

Our Citronella Mist has the same essential oils as in our Camper's Choice soap for continued protection.
So far, we have no reports of cats reacting to the catnip in the bar, but we did get this cartoon from a customer in Texas. Thanks again, Marla.
